About the show

This musical classic is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the Broadway musical: the chorus dancers–those valiant, underpaid, highly trained performers who live in the background of the limelight. More…

Seventeen dancers compete for a spot in the chorus line of a Broadway show, and the drama unfolds as they perform dazzling dance numbers and reveal personal stories through heartfelt songs.

Not dated, Entertaining, High energy, Great acting, Classic

See it if You want to see a classic show staged. Gallery players put it on very well. Dancing & acting were very good. Show did not feel dated.

Don't see it if You expect flawless perfection. While the performance of One didn't quite fit on the stage, the costumes were excellent & effect was good.

Also I love the references to Robert Goulet in this show (and it's part of ... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging, Slow

See it if I went to the final dress rehearsal. If you haven't seen any production of this remarkable musical then by all means go.

Don't see it if This one sticks to the original staging/dialogue etc so don't expect many changes. The talking part dragged, just as it did in other prod...

Also The simple but powerful staging still gives me thrills although it's 4... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Entertaining, Masterful, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if Iconic musical is given a first rate production even with Gallery's minimal resources. Actors playing Paul, Sheila & Diana shine Ensemble A+

Don't see it if Musicians overpower singers at times - some weak voices including Cassie (what she couldn"t do is sing) but high energy & slick staging win

Entertaining, Great singing, Great dancing, Thought-provoking, Enjoyable

See it if you never saw it before or if you are looking for thoughtful entertainment about the background of performers and performing.

Don't see it if you are not into dancing and singing. And certainly not if you are not interested in the lives of performers.

Entertaining, Slow, Great dancing, Cliched, Dated

See it if you are familiar with the story line and want to see this on stage. It was a good production. The Story is a bit dated.

Don't see it if the theater did not improve on the sound levels. The musicians over powered the non-microphone actors. Very hard to hear.

Also I enjoyed it, but the fact that every cast member had an issue was jus... Read more Read less

Clever, Great writing, Pulitzer winner, Well staged, acted, and sung, Entertaining

See it if you want a refresher on this Pulitzer worthy musical. Several wonderful performances, especially Paul and Morales. [You'll feel something.]

Don't see it if musicals, or plays about life in the theatre are not your interest.

80
Entertaining, Funny, Great singing

See it if you have a chance, the whole show is well casted and the music is the best part. Gallery Players never disappoint.

Don't see it if you need a big production, its minimal theater at it's best.

See it if You like classical theater done well in a small, intimate venue with great actors/dancers on stage.

Don't see it if You never liked A Chorus Line, don’t like performances where the actors don’t use mics, prefer musicals where there is a complex storyline.

Great singing, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if If you love ACL it’s no harm to give it a try

Don't see it if You’re expecting a highly professional broadway production. It’s only a tiny theatre, a classroom you may say

Also ACL is one of my favorite shows so I’d take whatever I got, and I do e... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Great dancing, Must see, Classic, Resonant

See it if You love A Chorus Line. You've never seen the singular sensation. The preview I saw was a little uneven but it's a great show.

Don't see it if Well, if you've seen it before and didn't love it, this probably won't be the production that changes your mind. It's not groundbreaking.

Also I love the show and I may go back to see it at the end of the run.

Entertaining, Great dancing, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if you love dancing! and - of course - if you still love the songs and sing them as if this play was just out : ]

Don't see it if you want and need a full on broadway experience; production is a bit more raw - voices are not giving me goosebumps but acting + dancing is

Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining

See it if You love great dancing and amazing musical numbers

Don't see it if You don't like musicals or dancing

75
Ambitious, Fun, Enjoyable

See it if you're a fan of the musical (or have never seen it!) - the show is justifiably revered, and this is a lovely, if simple, production of it.

Don't see it if you are looking for a professional caliber, consistent cast, are uncomfortable with intimate stagings, or only like broadway-budget prods.

71
Well acted and danced but on its 40's anniversary flaws in the script are getting more obvious

See it if you've liked it before and want to see it again with very able performers

Don't see it if you, like I am, are offended by bullying overbearing director Zak.

70
Entertaining, Overrated, Slow

See it if You are looking for some great dancing numbers and a musical classic.

Don't see it if Are expecting some amazing singing. The music drowned the singers even though their voices were good.

77
Ambitious, Absorbing, Clever

See it if You like being tense until the last scene!

Don't see it if You are not into intense plays

Great singing, Great acting, Great staging, Riveting, Profound

See it if you love incredible dancing, acting, and singing that smashes down the fourth wall. My heart ached for each character. Better than Bway.

Don't see it if I can't think of a single reason not to see it.
